Due to the latest surge with Omicron, we are fielding a lot of questions about whether we are holding our Annual Conference in Alexandria, VA in April. The answer for now is YES! We are planning for and excited to welcome attendees to our in-person annual CEIA conference. Current medical predictions are that this variant will peak in the coming weeks and fade away quickly.

We will continue to stress attendee safety, first and foremost.
Here are a few things we can tell you now about what to expect at CEIA:
We will continue to be transparent with you about the realities of planning an in-person event at this time and will continue to monitor reports.

Your neighbors and loved ones are counting on you to stop the spread of COVID-19.
